Today’s outfit was really difficult. I decided I was going to try and wear these purple pants again, so I did. But it was tough for me to leave the house, honestly. I thought I looked okay, but I don’t really like to draw SO much attention to my thick legs, so I don’t wear these very often. I stuck to my guns though and kept them on even though it was VERY HARD.
Then I went to MOSS to drop some stuff off, caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and was kind of horrified. Afterwards I went to Barney’s Co-Op and couldn’t get enough of looking at myself in the mirrors there – I thought I looked normal, even GOOD! It was weird. Although I know every mirror is different, depending on their angle, which one is reflecting the “real” me? How do I REALLY look?
Who knows? Who even cares? As long as I feel good and put together, what else matters? And I did feel pretty confident today in my outfit, even though it was initially difficult to wear. The fact that I made the decision to wear it and stop over-analyzing gave me the push I needed to just move on.
Do you ever have those moments when you’re out and see yourself differently in different mirrors?
